  • This light looks promising for a multitude of uses. I am excited to see the use of OLED lights in production models coming out soon. I think this will satisfy the techy people like me that like to know everything that is going on with the flashlight. I look forward to getting my hands on this guy and reviewing it in real world situations and possibly adding it to my canoe camping must haves list.

  • Congrats on the award! I can see why you guys won. I’m not even sure I would call this thing a flashlight, at 9000 lumens it’s more like putting the sun in your hand with an on-off switch. I’ll have to do a LOT of sweet talking to convince my wife that I need a flashlight like this, so maybe if I start now she will give in by the time it’s released. Keep doing what you are doing because your products are amazing.
